One of the most worrying attacks on a democratic political party and a people in the world today is what is happening to the Parliamentary Party the HDP (People’s Democratic Party) in Turkey and the Kurds.
GFTU delegates to our last three Conferences have heard first-hand from HDP MPs who have visited us about what is happening. We also asked our lawyer Paul Scholey and TSSA General Secretary Manuel Cortes to visit Turkey and the Kurdish regions for us. Manuel and Paul now strongly encourage you to get informed about the situation by joining in with this webinar.
The situation is so bad now that we are holding a webinar on the situation. An introduction will be given by Dr Hisyar Ozsoy, Co-spokesperson of HDP Responsible for Foreign Affairs, Member of Parliament, and Bedia Ozgukce Ertan, a former MP and Co-Mayor of Van.
The world knows too well from the 1930s what consequences can follow from the banning of well supported parliamentary parties and attacks on ethnic groups.
